March is National Social Work Month

Social work is a profession that allows people across many generations to make a profound, positive impact on the lives of millions of people each and every day. Since the 1960s, the National Association of Social Workers has designated March as National Social Work Month as way to recognize and pay tribute to social workers in the US. 

The theme for this year’s month-long celebration is, Social Workers: Generations Strong, to draw attention to the many contributions social workers of all ages make in our society. The Department is proud of its social workers who are making a difference in communities throughout the state. We want to recognize all the work being done to move communities forward. Stay tuned to our social media, as we spotlight the life-affirming work that social workers from all generations are doing at the Department.
